Martini Day falls on 19th June every year, and it may just be one of our favourite cocktail days! A martini is a classic gin cocktail traditionally made with gin and dry vermouth, but in true Slingsby-style, we have got a selection of wonderful martini cocktail creations using our full range. Whether you prefer a classic London Dry, our fruity Yorkshire Rhubarb or zesty Marmalade gin, have a look through our favourite martini creations and you may just find your new favourite...

If you do recreate them, don’t forget to tag us @slingsbysocial or using #Slingsby on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Enjoy!
